FIRST BANK SEA LION SHOWS BEGIN MARCH 12 WITH “SPRING TRAINING”
The sea lions of summer are back and reporting to “Spring Training” starting March 12 at the Saint Louis Zoo’s First Bank Sea Lion Show at Sea Lion Sound. These “Fish League” practices even include a few baseball-themed activities for the animal athletes — Cardinals-inspired, of course! The trainers are working with the intelligent pinnipeds on hurdle and high jumps, flipper walks, balancing acts, high dives, Frisbee tosses and other acrobatic and athletic behaviors.
Spring Training shows are at 1 and 2:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, March 12-13 and daily March 19-24. There are no shows March 14-18. Timed tickets are $2 per person. Children under two are free.
Pre-season weekend shows are at 11 a.m., 1 and 2:30 p.m. Friday-Sunday, March 25-27 and on Saturdays and Sundays, April 2-May 22. Daily summer shows run Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, May 27-Sept. 5, at 11 a.m., 1 and 2:30 p.m., with an additional show at 4 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays in summer. Timed tickets for these shows are $4 per person. Children under two are free.
